Buggies, Theatre, Tours & Shopping

Aaron & Jessica's Buggy Rides

Attraction

A family owned business, operated by Amish, Brethren and Mennonites (our family settled here in 1757). On your three and a half mile, 25-minute tour, get "insider information" from experienced drivers who will give you a vocal tour and answer all of your questions. Take a tour in your own private buggy: As couples or families, you may have your choice of buggies or open wagons. Travel on private roads right through the middle of real Amish farms. No other buggy ride can offer all we do. See Amish schools, shops, farm stands, businesses, show store, machine shop and a horse dealer. We ride in sun, snow or rain and offer scenic sleigh rides in the winter. HOURS: Weather permitting, Monday through Saturday from 8:00 am to dusk and Sunday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Magic Lantern Show

The Amish Experience, in cooperation with The American Magic-Lantern Theater (AMLT), is pleased to announce our newest production, Magic Lantern Shows at Plain & Fancy Theater, still also home to the critically acclaimed multi-media production of “Jacob’s Choice.” Travel back over 100 years to a time “before the movies,” when the spellbinding drama and humor of the Showman and the spectacular projected images from his “Magic Lantern Show” dazzled audiences across America. The stunning brass triple-lantern, glorious hand-painted illustrations, a giant screen, the Showman’s legendary story-telling skills, rousing music and sing-alongs, dazzling 19th century “special effects” — all combine to create this unique entertainment of the Victorian age, presented by the Amish Experience in collaboration with The American Magic-Lantern Theater at Plain & Fancy Farm, Bird-in-Hand, PA. More information at Magic Lantern Shows. Visit our Website.
